Detection is a complicated process involving many variables, and always exactly two actors. It is important to note that the engine does not calculate successful "sneak rolls" for the actor who is sneaking: it is vice versa; the engine calculates successful "detection rolls" for the actor being stalked (origin) vs. the sneaking actor (target). Therefore, detection is always calculated between two actors: the origin and the target.

The variables involved break down into three categories: Base, Skill, Light, Sound. These variables are simply combined together to calculate the end-result. If the end-result is higher than Oblivion CS:fSneakSeenMin (default: 0), the target is detected. When an actor is detected, it can be targeted as well, therefore the hostile units will engage the target in combat, while non-hostile units will only "notice" the target - which usually results in looking directly at the target and making a comment/greeting towards him/her.

Once detected, the target remains detected until he/she can get his/her detection end-result below a certain threshold vs. the origin. This threshold varies based on the relation of the origin and the target:

  • "Non-hostile" meaning that the origin does not care much about the fact that the target is trying to hide. It uses the Oblivion CS:fSneakUnseenMin value (default: 0.0) as threshold.
  • "Hostile" relation has two variants:
    • "Cautious" meaning that the hostile unit is looking for the target - typically saying warning lines during the process. It uses the Oblivion CS:fSneakLostMin value (default: -20.0) as threshold.
    • "Combat" meaning that the hostile unit is actually engaged in combat with the target. It uses the Oblivion CS:iAICombatMinDetection value (default: -50.0) as threshold.

Again, this is quite logical because it is easy to hide from someone who does not care, while it is pretty hard to fade out of sight during combat.

Description of the variables in the equation:

  • Base The basis for the calculation of the end-result, independent of any other value.
    • Sneak penalty governed by Oblivion CS:fSneakBaseValue (default: -25). This value is an absolute base value that is always applied, in order to indicate the intent to sneak. Basically it means that if the target makes no noise at all AND hiding in a very dark place AND does not make a move, the detection will fail (e.g. the target can successfully hide) even with a very low Oblivion CS:Sneak skill.
    • Combat bonus governed by Oblivion CS:fSneakTargetAttackBonus (default: 100). This values is added to the base only for a moment when the target initiates combat, making it a virtual certainty that for a moment the actor will detect his assailant. In that moment, the origin can decide to enter combat or not.
  • Skill The difference between the actors' sneak skills (origin vs. target); governed by Oblivion CS:fSneakSkillMult (default: 0.5)
    • The variable is modified by the distance between the actors.
  • Light The amount of light shining on the sneaking actor; governed by Oblivion CS:fSneakLightMult (default: 1.4)
  • Sound The level of noise that the target is making; governed by Oblivion CS:fSneakSoundsMult (default: 1.6), Oblivion CS:fSneakSoundLosMult (default: 1.0)

As You can see, all variables except Base are subject to distance attenuation. The distance is always measured between the target and the origin. The distance attenuation is always applied to the Skill, Light, Sound variables before calculating the end-result. The further away the target is, the less significant the variable is. It is quite logical: while I am far away,

  • I do not need good Oblivion CS:Sneak skill,
  • it does not matter whether I am in the darkest corner, and
  • it does not matter whether I make a little noise.

Obviously the minimum distance is always zero, however the maximum distance is limited. In Oblivion CS:Interior cells the maximum distance where detection applies is Oblivion CS:fSneakMaxDistance (default: 1500). The maximum distance in Oblivion CS:Exterior cells is calculated from Oblivion CS:fSneakMaxDistance and Oblivion CS:fSneakExteriorDistanceMult (default: 2) like this: OutDoorDistance = Oblivion CS:fSneakMaxDistance * Oblivion CS:fSneakExteriorDistanceMult; applying the default values this formula gives us 3000. Any actors outside this distance cannot take part in detection rolls - so if You start wondering why can't You hide in combat, this is one of the reasons: You are too far away to trigger detection calculations.
